Playing Nicolle Wallace Says She Learned About Her 'The View' Firing Through the Press

According to The View's former conservative co-host Nicolle Wallace, show producers neglected to inform her that she was getting the boot.

Wallace told Variety that it was their report that let her know she was losing her job.

"I had no plans of quitting," Wallace told the publication. "I thought that I would learn somewhere other than Variety that I'd been fired."

After being let go, Wallace was offered a contributor position on the show, which she turned down.

According to Variety, Wallace was brought on to intelligently represent conservative point of views on the panel opposite Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O'Donnell and Rosie Perez. Variety reports that ABC executives were displeased with her laidback style, and despite not giving her "a single note," decided to take her off the dais.

An ABC spokesperson tells ET, "We wish her well."

Following Wallace's departure, Perez also said goodbye to the ABC talk show, but of her own volition. The actress announced her exit last month.

"I want to thank The View," Perez said on her last day Friday. "I want to thank everybody. It's been wonderful."

O'Donnell left The View in February. The new panel for the upcoming 19th season, which kicks off in September, includes Goldberg, Raven-Symone and Michelle Collins.
